Can I Combine 2 Similar Jobs Into 1 in Order to Make More Room?

by Anonymous

I worked as a sales associate for 2 women's retail companies for a 8 years. The job description for each job is very similar. I need to make more room on my resume for another job description. Can I combine the 2 previous jobs into 1 in order to make room?

I Guess That's Do-Able

I wouldn't normally do this, but if you're trying to compress your resume into 1 or 2 pages, this could be a strategy. Do list both jobs, though, and then just list shared duties afterward.

Good Luck!
